Shaw Country House Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 November 2013

Stayed here for 3 nights in late October, apart from dated decor as some reviews have commented upon, dont judge this hotel on this aspect alone, the food is outstanding and the breakfasts are to die for, the people who run this hotel are very friendly and could not have been more welcoming, a must for people who are visting the area like we did!

We had a lovely stay here on Saturday evening with our puppy Sunny who was made just as welcome as we were. This really is a fabulous hotel which we cant rate highly enough. As someone else said the decor is dated but we didnt mind a bit as the room was spotless and really comfortable. Emma and Nick your hospitality is 1st class and we cant wait to stay again.

If dated decor bothers you, then don't come here, you won't like it! BUT if you want a really friendly welcome and first class food, then you really won't go wrong.

Dogs are made welcome here and there is even a convenient doggy field just around the corner. The setting is beautiful, the rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. Fantastic!

Easy to find even in pouring rain in the dark, and a haven from the world outside, we were immediately made welcome. Fabulous bar food served late in the evening followed by a spotlessly clean room and really comfortable beds. Décor is exceedingly dated and reminiscent of the 1970s however services like a wonderful power shower, tv in room etc were first class. A definite bargain price wise - and about 20 minutes to Bath in the morning. Breakfast was as good as it comes with proper butchers sausages and bacon and proper HP sauce ! However the lasting memory will be the welcome from the owners who are exceedingly hospitable. Thank you.

Room Tip: Room 10 was a lovely twin at the end of the corridor

Having spent 5 nights at the Shaw country house, its worth sharing my experience. first the hotel its self just a short ways to Melksham town centre all be it didnt spend much time there.
set in beautiful grounds the hotel boasts countryside views from each bedroom which is pleasure to see, a 15-20 minute walk takes you along a winding road to the local Inn (golden Fleece) for the more energetic types. the room i was allocated was very comfortable , spacious and tastefully decorated with en-suite that was excellent. Emma and Nick were more than obliging to make that my stay was pleasant and proved more than this with dining experience...............oh yes trust me on this what ever you read about the food delights is true beyond imagination.
There are pleanty of places of natural beauty and sight seeing such as Bradford on Avon also Lacock which an absolute must for Harry Potter fans.
Unfortunatly my visit was business based but i will return to The Shaw in the near future to experience the dining more than anything. i have no negatives about the hotel and hope who ever goes , takes this advise on board....thanks again to Nick and Emma.
